The Montseny, a trip to peace and quiet

Montseny is the oldest national park in Catalonia. In its over 116 square miles you will find not only plant species typical of Mediterranean climates but from others as remote as the Euro-Siberian and Boreo-alpine. Hence the uniqueness of this land, which many consider the most important park in Catalonia.

Located only 31 miles from Barcelona, it is ideal for a round trip on the same day. However, if you want to enjoy the Montseny for a longer period of time, there are different lodging options: rural hotels, holiday camp residences, hotels and campsites.

There are organized tours for schools, for mushroom gatherers or to learn more about medicinal plants growing in the park. It is also a very popular place to practice extreme sports.
